EG Hatchback HID Conversion Question
 
Hello- I'm looking to switch my 1992 Civic VX to HID projectors, and am having a hard time finding new headlight housings to use. I want to keep glass lenses, but the ones on my car have the fluting and ridges inside for scattering the beam, which I obviously can't use with projectors. Do you know of a good headlight housing that comes with smooth clear glass lenses? There is mention of these existing in the following article:

Offhand I don't. I thought about this very same thing with a Civic I used to own. Most seem to just opt for either crappy plastic aftermarket housings, or to drop LEDs in and live with poor focus and blinding other drivers.

However, a quick eBay search turned up some promising results:

I'd bet you can bake these and fit some small projectors inside.

Sweet, thanks man! I had actually not checked eBay as I really never buy stuff from there. Always worried about getting ripped off or something I suppose. Some of those look like they could work, for sure!
